THE entire Jindabyne community will be treated to a dramatic surprise on Friday courtesy of Jindabyne Central School (JCS).
Students, teachers and staff have been sworn to secrecy, revealing only that they have a crowd-pleasing, sure-to-impress surprise to commemorate National Reconciliation Week.
JCS principal Debbie-Lee Hughes confirmed about 700 students, teachers and staff would be involved in a Reconciliation Walk from JCS in Park Road, Jindabyne to the Jindabyne Community Stage at the Claypits on Friday June 13.
She said the surprise would take place at the Community Stage at 12.30pm on Friday and would involve the whole school community.
Ms Hughes said all students and teachers had been working hard to commemorate this year's Reconciliation Week theme - Let's walk the talk.
She invited everyone to attend the Community Stage on Friday and join in the Reconciliation Week activities.
"Reconciliation is about building better relationships between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples for the benefit of all Australians," Ms Hughes said.
"To create positive change we need more people talking about the issues and coming up with innovative ideas and actions that make a difference."
The National Reconciliation Week activities follow a performance of indigenous-inspired music at JCS last week by multi-instrumentalist Richard Perso, who played three didgeridoos along with acoustic guitars, drums, tambourine and vocals.
He performed for all primary school students and held a workshop with high school music students.
